trying to be sensible

This has never been a very sensible blog, has it? It's such a random mixture of moans and pictures and thoughts and questions. I wonder what it's for. Perhaps I should have more of a vision for what I want to do with it. Perhaps I should start a new blog for the sensible stuff (assuming I have something sensible to say about anything, which I'm not entirely sure I will). Perhaps I should just post things here.

I'll have a think. Does anyone have any comments? Why do you read pigwotflies? Is it because you've met me and/or are related to me and want to see what I'm up to? Because you find it amusing/intriguing/are dazzled by my insightful writing (I think not somehow)? Adrian got me blogging because he thought I'd like the intellectual discussion side of things. I've stayed out of the theological discussions he gets into, mostly because I don't think I've got much to add. But there are things I like talking about, books, art, science, philosophy. The discipline of turning a random thought into a short, coherent blog post might be useful.

Perhaps it's time to raise the bar of what makes the blog, rather than waffling on. And then, paradoxically, I might write more. Or I might intimidate myself and write less. Either way, I'd like to blog to some purpose, I think.

I actually love your blog for the random thoughts... which probably isn't helpful! And sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to you at KTog yesterday - we were such an enormous group!!

I love your blog just as it is. And it reminds me of yummy pudding, there's always a total gem surrounded by lots of food for thought.

I read your blog because its different from the SAHM tyye blogs.
I like reading about people living in the UK. Your pictures and writing is interesting.

I read your blog because you're my sister, but also because you write about interesting and sometimes quite odd stuff. I don't always understand what you're talking about (like with the literature stuff, or the science stuff...) but I like the random collection of stuff and your style of writing.
